The Crewe-built machine takes up to 130 hours to produce. The finished product, according to Bentley, is the fastest, most powerful, most luxurious and most exclusive SUV in the world.
We suppose that the biggest compliment that we could pay the Bentayga is the fact that it looks pretty much exactly the way one would expect an SUV Bentley to look. With four round LED headlamps and large grille much like its saloon and coupe siblings.
Bentley claims that the Bentayga boasts the world’s finest automotive cabin. This is due to the fact that the detailing in metal, wood and leather – including meticulous tolerances between elements of trim – is the epitome of modern British luxury.
Under the hood
The Bentayga features a twin-turbocharged 6.0 litre W12 engine with 447kW/900Nm for a 0-100 km/h time of 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 301 km/h.
There’s no point beating around the bush here, it costs R 3 987 000. If you’re interested you can view or order one from the new showroom in Melrose Arch, Johannesburg.
